Unlock the Mind with Optimism

Jun 24, 2008
Some people in this world say that being optimistic is an over-rated thing. Depending on how you look at it, the above statement can be true, it can also be false. Whatever it is, what's wrong if optimism is over rated? Being optimistic can make your life much easier, right?

Though there are many different meanings to the word optimism, all these meanings have one common point. That is: Being optimistic makes you feel good and more motivated to keep going even when things get tough.

The good thing about optimism is that it can affect other people's perspective and they too, will end up feeling inspired thanks to your optimistic attitude! Aside from that, dwelling on the positive aspect of the situation (which is another way to apply optimism), can prevent you from having high-levels of stress as well as intellectual and emotional disturbances.

When you are experiencing a horrible day or if you feel like you are stuck in a very sticky situation, you can psyche yourself to not feel so bad about it. You see, by dwelling on the problem, there is a tendency that your thoughts will be blocked by the stress and discomfort that you are making yourself go through. You can prevent yourself from experiencing the stressful and sometimes harmful impact of your problems by shifting your negative thoughts and reactions into something bright and positive.

To put it simply, just try your best to see the good in every bad situation. You might say that is is easier said than done, and admittedly, it takes practice for someone to be able to see the bright side in every kind of situation. Nevertheless, you just have to try doing so and eventually you will find it easy to see the positive side of every situation.

Of course there are some people who has little faith in the power of optimism but there are a lot of people who consider thinking positively as the attitude that fuel their success. One possible reason why some people lack faith in the power of optimism is because they have seen people who only solely uses optimism as their fuel for motivation and inspiration. This is actually unhealthy and unproductive.

The power of positive thinking will not be fully unleashed if it is being used alone. Imagine a poor man who wants to get rich and power and using the power of positive thinking, he hope that somehow, someday that he is able to achieve that. Obviously, the poor man will be nowhere near his goal.

In order for the power of positive thinking to reach its peak, you need to pair it up with your own hard work and determination. Without you playing a part, optimism can only help get over the fact that you are forever that far from your true goal.
